OKLAHOMA CITY -- Donald Trump is heading to Oklahoma this week, and one thing is certain... When Donald Trump speaks, folks are listening.

It doesn't seem to matter where you stand politically, "As a democrat, Donald Trump gives us a lot of things to talk about," said Mark Hammons, Chair of the Oklahoma Democratic Party.

So what kind of welcome will "The Donald" get here in Oklahoma, especially from women?

Carol Hefner, Co-Chair of the Trump Campaign in Oklahoma, sees him as a breath of fresh air. "His approach has been, actually refreshing. I think that they(women) see strong potential, they see a strength in him, and they see someone who's not willing to back down."

Since he first threw his hat in the ring for President, Trump has been a lightning rod for controversy on everything from abortion to immigration issues.

His view on those issues don't sit well with Democrats here in the sooner state, "His policies are not well thought out, and certainly not policies that seem to embrace the diversity of the United States," Hammons said.

In both Republican Presidential debates, the discussion always seemed to turn to women. Whether it be comments about Rosie O'Donnell, or recent comments about Carly Fiorina's looks, Trump has drawn criticism from both Democrats, and Republicans.

Hefner acknowledges, "He is not politically correct, he is politically honest."

Trump is preparing to step up in front of the Oklahoma masses at the State Fair on Friday, and it's bound to stir up conversation, no matter who you plan to vote for in 2016.

Other than the cost of a State Fair ticket, it's free to see Trump at the Bandshell Stage. Trump is supposed to arrive around 5:30 p.m., and could speak around 6:30 p.m.
